First entry in the challenge by @vesnabricelj
, first started by @bruceoldfield
, to find 10 vinyl covers that were relevant for me at the time, and post one every day. My choice is this album from Chavela Vargas, recorded in the 70s. Vargas was one of the great intepreters of Mexican rancheras, but also boleros and love songs. She was unique to me for her coarse husky voice, her singing a lament to unrequitted love, although she had several love affairs with some of the most attractive women of her time (she is even said, as a very young woman, to have had an affair with Frida Khalo). Alcoholism forced her in the 70s to step back from her career, to which she returned with great success in the 90’s, partially supported by Pedro Almodovar.
I now have to challenge someone else to do the same. I think I know who shall I tag first. As for the rest I’ll think of it tomorrow
